Katy's world is shattered. Her husband, Simon, has been murdered in a remote Cambodian border village. 

What was he doing there?

Unable to sleep in peaceful Melbourne, Katy seeks solace in Simon’s study: A remembered smell, a half-read book, something. What she finds is an unfinished manuscript, called Chavy’s Story, hinting at Simon’s secretive work. It tells the harrowing story of a young village girl trafficked for sex.

Katy travels to Cambodia in search of answers. The riddles buried in the pages of Chavy’s Story unmask a forgotten horror from Katy’s childhood.

Chavy’s Story will change Katy’s life forever...

"What a powerful opening! There's no dead body, blood spattering, guns blazing, nakedness, fangs and whatnot, yet it's a page-turner more than the rest. I've always wanted to write an opening that is both emotional and thought-provoking. This is one of the few. This is the kind of book you read NOT only to enjoy the story, but also EACH sentence." Dessara Harasse, Romance Author.

“Masterful and gripping, as if the author anticipates everything we as readers will demand and he delivers…Exceptional follow on to The Diary of Katy Yehonala…” Kelly, Indiebook Reviewer

Robert Barclay grew up in a picturesque English village, a 1000-year history engraved on tombstones and birth records in its Norman Church. Fate intervened when the family migrated to Australia in 1965 and seduced by the sea voyage, he yearned to see the world. During the Vietnam War, he found himself in the murky waterways of The Mekong Delta dismantling booby traps. The inspiration for his writing and charity work comes first-hand from the war-ravaged villages and the children affected by the inhumanity of adults.
